(machine translated in 2023) Great day trip
After weeks of warm summer weather finally surfing again. Nice and warm, 20 degrees, dry and SW 5 to 6.
We sailed together with Rob and Peter.

I was there first, I was standing by the wind vane, so in the lee of the harbor. On the side 15 to 20 knots wind. On the water it certainly had to be more. Most surfers were working with 4.7 to 5.3. Fairly flat water, nice time to give my Trans-Am 5.4 a try.

Trans-Am 5.4 with S-Type 104
First time the Trans-Am 5.4 rigged. Trim was quickly found. My smallest Eagle underneath, the 31cm and go. It was really getting on and flying away. And flying it certainly was, speed felt high, especially if the chop was not too intense I could let my set run nicely. Only in the hectic chop was the 31cm perhaps too big or too stiff. Then had no control at all. Zeil felt a little nervous. Let's try the JP underneath.

Trans-Am 5.4 with FSW 84
Just doubted which fin to grab, 27 or 31cm. Still chose the 27cm because the 31cm with the S-Type was already on the large side. Posture was less pleasant, because of the single foot strap behind I could not stand on the rail, because then I was standing next to my foot strap. Otherwise ran nicely. But still decided to grab a wave sail.

Ice 5.3 with FSW 84
I had hesitated for a while to rig up my 4.7 since I went with the 5.4 full speed. But the wind seemed to subside slightly, and I didn't want to float. So I caught my 5.3, with my Mistral 25cm, always good, sailed nicely, made a lot of sponges and gybs, some duck gybes, is a nice one in the video.

All me already and nice and especially fun day with Rob and Peter.

  (machine translated in 2023) First time with the Trans-Am 5.4. Set ran fast, control was reasonable. Found it terrifying in the chop sometimes. Board didn't have all the control. Maybe try with a different fin. Sail is nice and stable and a lot of control.
